    Top Straight Boubon Posters

    We were talking about this site last night in the chat room. There is a website that tracks top posters per week for various discussion boards. Last month I was #2, now I have fallen out of the top 5 -- the dangers of starting the semester back.

    If it was not for active members, there would not be anything to read... and remember, the VBT game really skews posts and posts per day.

    I do not recall any max postings and posts per day rules on this site. This site is tame compared to most. With this many members and how long the site has been around it is amazing that there are not a lot of 10K posters with closer to 10 posts per day.

    If you want to judge your volume to worth ration, look at the responses or lack of responses to your posts... you have huge sresponse and following... keep it up man, I like reading your stuff...

    .... and out posts just went up a couple more

    If we keep posting to this thread, the three of us can keep our spots at the top!!!

    I agree with Em... I would get a lot more done, but be significantly more bored if it weren't for people who post every couple hours.

    Not surprisingly, 4 of the people on that list are in the top 30 posters all-time on the board...

    There's a natural tendency for newcomers to post more frequently than old-timers. Over the years one's enthusiasm can't help but wane.

    When I first joined, I checked for new posts several times a day and had a comment or question in response to most of them. Now I'm in lurk mode 99% of the time (partly due to the fact that my alcohol consumption is now limited for medical reasons).

    Besides, does anyone really care that I had a sip of Blanton's recently and liked it better than I remembered? (I posted about a year ago that in my near-abstinence my preference for WT RR 101 vs. the 90 proof had reversed, but Blanton's? My taster is obviously out of shape.)

    Don't make me flood the forum, man. I'll do it too.

    P.S. Not really. Please don't ban me.
